Cuz joined the Rising Sun Community Fire Company on March 1, 1955 where he remained a lifelong member up until his passing. During his 66 years with the fire company, he held the following positions; Board Member, Ambulance Chief (1963), Treasurer and President. He also served on the Board of License Commissioners.
